Managing our Marina
The Moorage Committee has the major advisory role for the marina, and provides over site for volunteer work and Harbormaster duties, along with the HPMA Manager.
The Harbormaster is responsible for the day-to-day operation and maintenance of the marina.
Contacting the Harbormaster
Only Property Owners should contact the Harbormaster.
Contact the Harbormaster email@example.com with the dates needed, beam and length of boat, address of property to be billed. Temporary moorage is limited to property owners and their guests. Property owners must be onsite during the requested temporary moorage date for the guest. Moorage is not available to renters.
Every effort is made to accommodate all boats. Please contact Harbormaster if canceling reservations to avoid being billed.
Use of Indian Cove Marina
Temporary/Transient moorage is on the front just inside the breakwater, and is for the use of Property Owners who do not have slip leases.
Contact the Harbormaster for reservations prior to docking. The required paperwork is in the mailbox at the base of the gangway. Funds from the MARINA SLIPS and TEMPORARY MOORAGE help to maintain Indian Cove Marina.
Kayak & Canoe Storage
Racks are available at the marina and other locations for storing kayaks and canoes, for an annual fee. Check with Pam at HPMA office regarding fees and availability.
There are two boat ramps; one is located off Chesapeake Drive and the other in the North Beach Lagoon. These are not a part of the Indian Cove Moorage but are maintained by HPMA. Tide charts should be considered when using both ramps, especially in the lagoon.
Fireplace at the Marina
When Quadrant developed Hartstene Pointe back in the 70's many purchasers of the property believed they were promised a marina. A settlement was reached and a 20 slip marina built.
Several years later property owner surveys went out seeking interest to enlarge that marina but the surveys failed. So 100 property owners put forth the funds ($400,000) to build the current 110 slips.
The agreement made with HPMA was that those property owners hold the leases for 25 years and the operation of the marina would be maintained by the lessees at no cost to HPMA. That time was extended in 1996 for another 10 years, until May, 2017 because the leaseholders put forth all the funds to pay for the dredging ($250,000).
In 2004, a policy was adopted that would continue to renew the leases with HPMA beyond 2017. The moorage slip assessments paid annually by the lessees supports the maintenance, insurance, office assistance, Harbormaster, and Washington State Shoreline Lease. Residual funds are set aside for future dredging, major repairs, etc.
Dock Replacement Fee Discount
To: Long Term Moorage Leaseholders
The Dock Replacement Fee is a five year funding plan. The contractor, Marine Floats has been selected to build the new docks. It is our intention to have the new docks in place by Memorial Day, 2019. This, of course, is dependent on the permitting process moving ahead as anticipated.
NOTE: This obviously did not happen. although every requirement for permitting was met .... and approved by The Wa. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Salish Indian Tribe, the Squaxin Indian Tribe, Mason Country Planning Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the WA State Dept. of Ecology; a federal agency who would not to have much to do with it, NOAA, stepped in. As a result, the whole project is on hold because of one person, Jennifer Quan. We are engaging in a letter writing campaign to state and federal legislators. This is patently unfair, not only to us, but to the environment. The new docks, when completed, will have 50% light penetration, a lesser footprint and will be floated on 100% virgin Prime grade Polyethylene, filled with 100% Virgin 1 pcf Expanded Polystyrene. The aging docks are unsafe, floating on styrofoam tires that are leaking styrofoam into the water, with zero light penetration. It is also costing the state millions of dollars in commerce and hundreds of jobs. Please join us in writing to our elected officials. Several of them, Drew MacKewen and Dan Griffey are already 100% behind our efforts.
